Working for the Japanese: the economic and social consequences of Japanese investment in Wales
Wales has one of the highest concentrations of Japanese manufacturing investment in Europe, with the recent arrival of a Toyota engine plant at Deeside and a Sony television plant at Pencoed. It provides a case study for examining the economic and social impact of this new investment, which is often perceived as being very different from existing foreign investment. This study evaluates this case study, looking at the attraction of Japanese capital to Wales, its impact on the Welsh economy, upon employment, management practice, industrial relations, the community, and upon the Japanese themselves. Finally, the book also considers the future prospects for Japanese investment in Wales, and the likely effects.
